Central States Show Report and Newps

The Central States show in Schaumburg, IL, by many reports was a slow show.  However, we were very busy greeting customers, selling coins, wholesaling coins, and buying a few coins, and we came out in the black for the show.  PCGS had a great special on crossovers, so we took advantage of that, and we also submitted a lot of coins for grading.  We were fortunate to have Len Augsburger as our table assistant for the entire show, and we had a blast!  After all, we were at a coin show!  We both enjoyed examining some of the Pogue coins that we were reviewing for a client.  The proof 1820 and proof 1834 Bust Quarters are amazing and we wouldn't be surprised to see record prices for both coins.  


Our new purchases ("newps") are highlighted by a very historic coin.  We acquired a Scott restrike Confederate half dollar that has the same WB-102 obverse (with the die crack from the rim to the nose) as the 4 original CSA half dollars.  In other words, it was struck with the same obverse die as the original CSA half dollars, and it was also struck with the same reverse die as the original CSA half dollars.  The only difference is that it was struck on a planed-down 1861-O half dollar, and not a half dollar blank planchet.  There are 4 known Scott restrikes with the WB-102 obverse.  And our coin is less than one-twentieth of the price of one of the CSA original half dollars, two of which sold recently for $881,250 (NGC VF-30) and $646,250 (NGC XF-40).


Our other newps include an 1872-CC quarter in NGC F-12 that is fully original, an 1873 No Arrows Open 3 quarter in NGC MS-64 CAC, an 1878-CC half in PCGS AU-53, an 1855 Seated dollar in PCGS VF-20, and a gorgeous 1936 Lincoln cent that is not only a top-pop coin, but it also has standout color!  Plus our latest addition, a 1795 LM-4 half dime in NGC MS-61.
